Hollywood Reporter states “[FOX]… has picked up Rainn Wilson-starrer Backstrom — the drama developed by CBS during the 2013-14 pilot season — to series… Backstrom is based on the books by Swedish criminologist/novelist Leif G.W. Persson and was first developed in July 2012. The hourlong crime drama centers on an overweight, offensive, irascible detective as he tries and fails to change his self-destructive behavior. Fox has ordered 13 episodes, and production will begin early this year. A formal premier date has not yet been announced.”
